Hello all and thanks for reading this.
I have a Singer 70 sewing machine that my husband bought for me as a gift. When I sew knits (as I begin from the end of a piece of knit fabric), the feed dogs pull the end of the knit below the throat plate. And the fabric gets stuck/doesn’t move. This is getting worse and worse and it is a new machine. It only happens with knits. When I was using this machine in my sewing class, my teacher told me that Singers are notorious for doing this.
When I called Singer customer service, they said that it is a problem with the way the machine is threaded. If so, then why does this not happen with cottons? If so, why does this happen when my mother (lifelong sewist) threads the machine? If this is so, why does this happen when my teacher threads the machine?
It keeps happening to the point where I’m ready to give up sewing altogether. I’ve had several experienced sewists tell me (after I purchased the machine) that Singers has had significant quality problems in recent years.
Any feedback that you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!
